Much to the surprise of its fandom, Disney has officially confirmed that Aladdin 2 is on the way. The live-action remake of Aladdin was a huge hit ever since its release in May 2019. Directed by Guy Ritchie, the movie enjoyed a massive applaud from its viewers, and now it is returning with its second part, Aladdin 2. John August will most likely serve as the scriptwriter of Aladdin 2.
With a $91 million opening weekend, Aladdin ended up being Disney’s massive success, earning over $1 billion worldwide.
A producer on the first film, Dan Lin, told Syfy Wire, “We’re looking at ‘[what’s] best way to go with these characters….The audience response has touched us in thinking about where we can go with the stories, and see we feel like these characters have more the adventures in store.”
The makers have not yet made any announcement regarding the release date of Aladdin 2. However, seeing the success of Aladdin on movie screens worldwide, the second part, Aladdin 2, is sure to hit the cinemas very soon.
Aladdin stars newcomer Mena Massoud in the leading role of Aladdin, Naomi Scott, playing Princess Jasmine and Will Smith as the mysterious Genie. The film brings back classic tunes from the 1992 animated movie like “One Jump Ahead” and “Prince Ali”. It has also added a new song for princess Jasmine called “Speechless.”
Talking about the plot and storyline of Aladdin 2, nothing as such can be predicted. However, It’s more likely that Aladdin 2 will be portraying a completely original story. Disney has settled on the idea offered up by John Gatins and Andrea Berloff. The two are Oscar-nominated screenwriters who will be collaborating for the first time in Aladdin 2.
It will be interesting to see that how collaboration between the two writers and the director will turn out, enthralling the audience with the thrilling adventures of Aladdin.
